Hamilton Island is home to some of the most stunning oceans in the world; bright turquoise waters that glisten with marine life is just the norm at this heavenly location. In our opinion, the best way to witness these crystal clear seas is by snorkelling – so remember to pack a mask, snorkel and a pair of flippers in your luggage and hit the big blue for a once in a lifetime experience. If you’re new to the sport and haven’t got your own snorkel, don’t let this deter you from experiencing the wonders of the ocean. Simply head down to the local snorkel hire shop and rent the kit for free – this is just one of the many benefits when staying at the Palm Bungalows.
